    More bad news for the AGW crowd!!

    :hello77::hello77:

    CO2 has been on a steady decline....thanks to natural gas. But do we EVER hear the climate crusaders talking about it?:coffee::eusa_dance::eusa_dance:. Of course not....after all, there is an agenda to push. Ghey:113:

    Too....natural gas has contributed to the temperature decline since 1995.... also never mentioned by the climate crusaders.

    Firstly, the "AGW crowd" want the world to be less polluted.

    Secondly you're only talking about the US. The world isn't just the US.

    Thirdly I though CO2 didn't do anything, according to the "MMGW denial crowd".

    But the co2 emissions are still too high, which is why educated people are not popping the champagne.

    And how much of this is because of what people who are worried about the world and the pollution have been doing?

    If it had been left to the deniers, this wouldn't have happened.

    CO2 is not a pollutant!

    Meanwhile a major reason is the reduction of Coal to increased use of NG.

    Maybe YOU can answer this TOUGH question, I have asked many times only to be ignored:

    What is being denied?

    Of course, carbon dioxide is a pollutant in certain contexts, like climate.
    True, and due in no small part to the efforts intended to reduce coal use.

    Sigh. We're back to this argument are we?

    Pollute

    Definition of POLLUTE

    "to contaminate (an environment) especially with man-made waste"

    Now, let's try this for an example. A swimming pool.

    A swimming pool is not just water. Usually it'll have a cleaning substance in it, chlorine. Put too much chlorine in a swimming pool and you'll end up poisoning the people in the pool. More than that and you'll kill them. Why?

    Because chlorine is a dangerous gas. They used it in WW1 and someone has used it in Syria recently. Though it's not that effective as a weapon because it disperses easily.

    You can put in X amount of chlorine, and the pool is not polluted. You can put in X*2 amount of chlorine and you've polluted the pool, because it's no longer "clean" or safe to swim in.

    What is being denied?

    Reality.

    What happens to CO2 when it goes into the air?

    A lot of it ends up on the oceans.

    What happens to the oceans when there's an increase of CO2?

    The PH levels change.

    What happens to sea life when the PH levels change their environment too much?

    They die?

    What happens to the oceans when they die?

    We don't know. Potentially the oceans will potentially A) stop taking in CO2 and B) release a lot of the CO2.

    What would happen if the oceans suddenly let out so much CO2 that the Earth's atmosphere changed too much.

    We'd all die.
